Weekly News From the President: Amy Goodman to Deliver Opening Keynote at #ACMBMore

I’m pleased to announce that award-winning journalist and host of Democracy Now! Amy Goodman will deliver the opening keynote address at our National Conference in Baltimore on July 11.

Amy is a courageous journalist and an inspiring speaker whose daily news coverage is seen and heard on radio, cable, broadcast, and satellite on over 1,400 channels worldwide. But the program didn’t start out as a syndication giant in independent media. It started as a daily community media broadcast.

And that’s one of the reasons we’ve invited Amy to speak. What she and her crew do is special, but it’s not that different from what we all can do if we think about the impact of our work and are determined to be more.

I’ve known Amy since my community radio days, and like many of our community television operations, have had the pleasure of hosting Democracy Now! broadcasts. I’m looking forward to hearing from her about the meaning of independent and local media in 2018 and beyond.

I hope you join us in Baltimore!

Sincerely,
Mike Wassenaar
President & CEO
The Alliance for Community Media
